Hi! I have run snappyHexMesh with the layer addition activated at the snappyHexMeshDict but apparently the output at the log file indicates that any layer addition was made to one of the two stl files.

The final lines of the log file are these ones:

Doing final balancing

Writing 3205648 added cells to cellSet addedCells
Writing 2717073 faces inside added layer to faceSet layerFaces

Writing fields with layer information:
    nSurfaceLayers    : actual number of layers
    thickness         : overall layer thickness
    thicknessFraction : overall layer thickness (fraction of desired thickness)

patch       faces    layers   overall thickness
                              [m]       [%]
-----       -----    ------   ---       ---
Cylinder    85669    0        0         0       
Plate_round 701455   4.57     0.0017    58
Meaning that no layers have been added to the solid called "Cylinder". I am attaching the snappyHexMeshDict to show both files and definitions. I have checked if some parameter was missing but I can't find the error. Thanks in advance!
